I'm actually quite a fan of PC3-12800 memory. I feel that it's a good speed for people who are hoping to get a bit more power from their memory modules without having to spend the massive amounts of money that PC3-16000 modules tend to carry with them.
Priced at just over $100 U.S., the Patriot PC3-12800 6GB kit which sits in the Gamer Series lineup from the company is what we're going to be looking at today. What we intend to find out is if you can still get some serious performance from your RAM without having to spend the massive amounts of money that tends to come with ultra low latency modules or extremely high spec'd 2000MHz kits.
What we'll do before we have a closer look at the performance of the modules is see how they come packaged along with having a closer look at the modules to find out just what kind of timings the kit carries with it. We'll also see if we have any luck overclocking the Patriot kit we have with us today before getting stuck into the numbers game that is our benchmark results.
